midst of a deadly storm unlike any this city has seen before. for the first time since 9/11, all bridges and tunnels leading in and out of the city are closed down, and this is what manhattan looks like tonight. eerily dark and quiet as this massive superstorm has left half of the city without power and partially under water. at nyu hospital one of the biggest in the city and the country, the backup generators have failed forcing rescue personnel to evacuate patients. this historic storm tonight is wreaking havoc up and down the atlantic seaboard from the carolinas to connecticut, claiming at least ten lives so far. flooding entire towns, causing blackouts across the midatlantic and midwest and snoerms frwstor maryland to tennessee. juju chang spent the day in lower manhattan and comes to us from the dangerously flooded streetings. what is the latest? >> reporter: we've sent much of this evening wading through the floodwaters ofmanhattan, through the evacuation zone, this storm now has the dubious distinction of setting a record for a record storm surge but it's deceptively calm

going to really start to move the needle on the city's transit first policy. muni is at the core of that, improved taxi service, better and safer cycling. car sharing has a potential to be a big part of the solution. so, we're fully on board with trying to advance this. what i was endeavoring to show here in the presentation is we see on-street parking as perhaps a big part of the solution to the expansion of car sharing. i think the suggestions you were making in your district were largely off-street spaces. that would be perhaps above and beyond what we would do in this pilot. we're really looking at on-street. we'd be happy to facilitate conversations between city college and puc and other large housing authority, other large landowners with the car share companies to the extent we could help see more car sharing in those areas. i think putting one on-street space as an island, i think is going to always be a challenge in terms of getting that critical massive usage to get the utilization to where it makes sense to have it there. i think we need to help seed that demand and perha

something about housing first a while ago, this started in new york city called pathways to housing about 20 years ago. and the idea there was prior to this, let's get people ready to housing and then let's get them into housing. that never ever happened with any kind of regularity because people were so badly disabled and the idea they would get better on the streets was frankly a ludicrous idea. the national conversation shifted about two decades ago, the notion of let's get people housed first and then we'll work with them on their disabilities has been not only at local levels but also on the federal level what's been promoted and over the last 8 it 9 years, so that's what we tried to do. and at that point, you know, the mainstream housing developers, the affordable housing producers which this town has many incredible affordable housing producers were well-known for as small a town as we are the number of good housing, affordable housing producers, they weren't at all convinced that having people who had been homeless for 10 and 15 years and who have 3 and 4 chronic health issu
